I Saw Aaron Carter Live In Concert

Contributed by Smile:

performed yesterday at Red, White, and Boom for Mix 93.3 in Kansas City. He was on for half an hour and performed six songs. As some of you know, I have been a fan of Aaron for awhile. But I have to admit that I had been underestimating him. He is so talented. He sounds better live, in my opinion, then he even does on his albums. He needs to hold those notes on his next album. I think everyone in that amphitheater was on their feet. He got an awesome reception.

What I noticed was different from Aaron than the other artists performing that day is the way he connected with the audience. He was the singer that reached out into the crowd and touched hands. After his performance, during an intermission, he went into the crowd and hugged everyone that came up to him. He even walked back into the lawn seats (which were the farthest from the stage). He made everyone feel seen and like they were part of the show.

A few of the other singers there were Lifehouse, Bowling For Soup, Howie Day, Gavin DeGraw, and Nivea.

    gag, choke, gag.’, ‘and you asked everyone if they felt seen?

    I didn’t mean “seen” in the way you’re talking about it. haha. It’s hard to explain if you weren’t there. Aaron didn’t make it seem like “hey, I’m over here on stage and you all are way over there.” He was the only singer there that was so accessible to his fans if they wanted to go up to him. I’m not saying anything bad about the other artists there because I don’t have a problem with the ones I listed. And yes, I would say close to everyone there wanted to see Aaron.

    I, too, was at the concert you are referring to (4th row). I thought Aaron was quite entertaining as well, but I would have to disagree when you say that Aaron was the ONLY artist that was accessible to all of his fans. As you can tell, I’m a Gavin DeGraw fan myself, and I was thrilled that he was there. Gavin jumped OFF the stage, went INTO the crowd, and UP to the next SECTION of seats — probably 30+ rows up from the stage. And then on top of that, if you purchased one of his T-shirts you were able to meet him. Would this not be considered being “accessible”? I’m not disagreeing that Aaron was quite generous to his fans — because he definitely was. I saw him in several different areas, and I even saw him ON STAGE while Gavin was performing (and no, I’m not getting him mixed up with when Jesse McCartney came out and sang with Gavin). It was obvious to me that Carter was there to have a good time, and this I think he did. I’m glad you had a good time and got to see Aaron (and several others). I just wanted to put my 2 cents in :)

    I’m going to have to say sorry for that because I wasn’t there when Gavin…’, ‘performed. I left because it was really hot outside and the person I was with was having health problems. I wish I could have stayed for his performance. I actually was going to before a situation came up. I actually asked someone about that before I posted and they said nobody was as opened to their fans as Aaron was. I know that nobody before Aaron was that opened. So that’s why I said that. What song did Aaron sing with Gavin? I left after Bowling For Soup was on. What did Aaron do after that?

  5. DeGrawfanatic says:

    Aww, I wish you could have stayed! It was phenomenal (in my opinion)! Well, Aaron never actually went ONTO the stage and sang with Gavin, but he sat on a speaker that was set up on the side of the stage and was taking pictures of him while he performed. It was really humbling seeing an artist be a fan. (Jesse sang the very end of, I believe, “Chariot,” with Gavin, though — which was Gavin’s last song.) In my opinion, Gavin was VERY open with his fans, but in different ways as Aaron. If I had to pick the top two “open” performers that day, it would definitely be Gavin and Aaron. Jesse also showed and interacted with his fans (he brought one girl up on stage during “Take Your Sweet Time”), but that was really the only SEEN thing Jesse did if memory serves me right (I, personally, can’t say if he did or didn’t do anything backstage, etc.).

  6. Smile says:

    Yeah, I wish I could have stayed too. I know what you mean…’, ‘about Aaron standing beside the stage when he was performing. I saw him do the same during Howie Day’s performance. He wasn’t taking pictures though. Aaron was trying to hide at first behind the big speaker boxes but I could see him anyway. haha. It’s cool that he stayed and watched other artists. Like I said in my other post, I don’t have a problem with Gavin. I was obviously wrong about Aaron being the only person with fan interaction. I’m not a Jesse fan but I’m sure alot of people there were and that’s OK. Over all, it turned out to be an even better show than I thought it would be. It seems like you had a good time too. Hopefully next year Gavin and Aaron will be back to do this show or one like it.

    I think it’s seriously awesome that Aaron stayed and watched other artists. I don’t remember seeing him when Howie Day performed, but I really wasn’t looking for him either (not that I was when Gavin was on, but it was just SO OBVIOUS from where I was sitting). I was hoping you didn’t have a problem with Gavin since I enjoyed his performance so well. But I still definitely agree with you when you say that Aaron was VERY open with his fans. When I first heard Aaron was going to be there, I honestly didn’t know quite what to think. I was pleasantly surprised, though! Before this concert I had seen approximately 35 artists in concert before. Country, pop, rock, alternative — no rappers (haha), but other than that… pretty much a little bit of everything. I think I could honestly say that this was one of THE BEST (if not THE BEST) concerts I ever attended. If I were to say that I JUST “enjoyed myself…” it would be an a HUGE understatement.

  8. Smile says:

    No, I don’t have a problem at all with Gavin. I just got some wrong information about what happened during the concert after I left. This was the first time I saw Aaron live so I was surprised myself. I haven’t been to that many concerts before, but I did enjoy this one. I’m not big into rap either. I was surprised they didn’t have more rap music at the show because that’s what is popular right now. Like I said in my other post, I hope Mix 93.3 continues to have a good artist lineup for their concert next year.
